Local Information

  • You can find the latest weather forecast for the greater Copenhagen area at the Danish Meteorologic Institute's homepage.
  • Note that it may not always be possible to pay with credit card, as some stores only accept credit card with PIN (and it is a mistery when which foreign cards and PINs are accepted). Of course all the bigger stores in Copenhagen take credit cards.
  • Denmark does not use the Euro (€) but the Danish Crown (DKK). The exchange rate for DKK 100 is approximately € 13, £ 11 and USD 19.
  • Voltage is 220V.
  • Most Danes speak english.


  • Here you can find an overview of the DTU campus, including location of the lecture hall 308 and the bus stops.
  • A taxi from the airport to DTU takes approximately 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the route (through the city or around) and traffic conditions. The price is approximately DKK 400 through the city and DKK 500 around the city.
  • For information on how to get around in the greater Copenhagen area you can look at the travel plan of the Danish Railway Company. To search for connections use CPH for the airport, KBH for the central station, and DTU for the campus. The best connection from Copenhagen is by S-train to Lyngby and then by bus to DTU campus.
  • From the city to the campus you need a ticket for 5 zones, from the airport to the campus you need a ticket for 6 zones, and from the airport to Copenhagen you need a ticket for 3 zones. Note that you can buy a 10-trip ticket (Klippekort) with usually almost 50% discount. These tickets are sold at the kiosks of almost all stations and at the airport, as well as some stores.
